Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2014/Dementia care motivation
Contribution from u3082340
Hello! Very interesting topic - definitely not something I would have thought of. Just fixed a couple of little tedious grammatical things - like needed capitals, etc. May have missed a few so maybe have a double check. Were also a couple of spelling errors. I've also got a few suggestions:
- Maybe put your 'stages' of dementia into a table - just so it's a little easier to read.
- Your content and information is really interesting, and the topic is something I personally resonate with - however perhaps there's a little too many stats on the prevalence and issues within the disease rather than unit content?
- You could integrate more theory/ theories. I understand the due date is creeping up but maybe have a look at another theory of motivation. Perhaps The Incentive Theory of Motivation would be relevant, in the form of the incentive being the well being of a loved one?
Here's some more info on the theory! http://psychology.about.com/od/motivation/a/incentive-theory-of-motivation.htm Just some ideas! Otherwise great topic, goodluck!
I think a nice way to present some of the information for this topic would be firstly just look at 'caring' in a general underlying sort of way, and how maybe morality and altruism fit into this for all (or most) humans. Then, and I really don't know much about this topic, but you could maybe find some studies that suggest more specific biological differences in those that choose to become nurses, volunteer carers etc., and present them as biological, or nature, bases for motivating people to care and extrapolate that to caring for people with dementia. Then perhaps you could find more overt motivational reasons that are on the nurture side, such as having a family member go being affected or something like that. I think this sort of funneling down presentation of the information, from very broad human aspects to specific biological differences and then particular life experiences would be a nice way to go about it.

--JenJen (discuss • contribs) 07:50, 18 October 2014 (UTC)There is a position paper by The Australian Psychological Society on "Psychology and Ageing" that I thought you might find interesting. It has a bit about caregiving and dementia in it too. Hope its useful, if not it's still an interesting read.--JenJen (discuss • contribs) 07:50, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi! I think this is a very interesting topic as dementia is becoming a prevalent disease in older people and in research. Here's an article that talks about positive and negative aspects of caring for dementia patients. It might give you some ideas about why carers specifically work with dementia patients and whether they do it for the rewards or not. http://zh9bf5sp6t.scholar.serialssolutions.com/?sid=google&auinit=S&aulast=Andr%C3%A9n&atitle=Family+caregivers%E2%80%99+subjective+experiences+of+satisfaction+in+dementia+care:+aspects+of+burden,+subjective+health+and+sense+of+coherence&id=doi:10.1111/j.1471-6712.2005.00328.x&title=Scandinavian+journal+of+caring+sciences&volume=19&issue=2&date=2005&spage=157&issn=0283-9318 (excuse the large hyperlink). Good luck with your book chapter! --U3054867 (discuss • contribs) 03:14, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
I recommend using APA style captions i.e., Figure 1, Figure 2 etc. for all images, graphs etc. and Table 1, Table 2 etc. for all tables. The caption text should not be in italics. For more detail and examples, see http://libguides.newcastle.edu.au/content.php?pid=113807&sid=1208571 -- Jtneill - Talk - c 10:12, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi, just letting you know that I've done an extremeley minor edit to your page. The second image you had said figure 3, but was actually figure 2 so Ive gone ahead and changed that for you :) --U3072703 (discuss • contribs) 22:39, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
Minor edit needed
I'm liking the look of this article, flows well and easy to read, concisely summarizes the important information, good references and external links
i noticed your table labeling is mixed up, table 2 comes first
let me know if you want someone to check over your page once the motivation theory stuff goes up, ill be working on my masochism page into the evening :)

Multimedia feedback query
Hi, I noticed in the multimedia feedback that a note was made I hadn't provided links or referenced the images used. In fact all references and all 3 images are listed on the page, although small, they are definitely there. If further evidence is needed I can provide a screen shot.
